Interiors: Inside Grace Coddington’s Apartment


My obsession for Grace Coddington is high, more so now that I also know she is a collector, sorry I meant to say fellow hoarder!!! Whereas my walls and rooms seem to be filled with Barbie dolls, cows, elephants, stationery, delicate bone china and cats – it seems everyone’s favourite Vogue editor has taken her love affair with felines to a whole new level and I love it.

If you didn’t already know that Grace loves cats, one where have you been, and two you need to read her memoirs there is a whole chapter dedicated to kitties. Not only does she have the cutest cat ever, Bart looks pretty comfortable on that Chanel blanket, but I also love that she has cats dotted all over her home from kitty cushions to incredible ceramic cat-shaped tea pots, which have just gone to the top of my wish list.

As well as the kitty love, her love for English crockery is clear in her stacks of mis-matched plates, cups and jugs, and I adore how she has all her mainly black-and-white art work on display, especially in the bedroom on a ledge around the top of the wall – that idea is definitely going into my ‘forever’ house interior folder on Pinterest.

Check out the accompanying interview with the editor, who I can’t believe turned 73 this month, and find about her up-coming auction she is doing with Paddle8.com.

I wish Grace Coddington could come and give my little abode an interior makeover – I just love how eclectic her home looks while still being down-to-earth and lived in.

Interiors: Fearne Cotton Home For Very


On Wednesday I popped by Home House to check out Fearne Cotton’s debut interiors collection. I know I don’t feature much on the interior side on this blog but I loved so many pieces from her collection that I just had to share.

The 28-piece collection features cushions, cabinets, rugs and even a four-poster bed, all inspired by Fearne’s eclectic style, think vintage, floral and oriental prints, bright pinks, and her love of cats, as well as her Nan’s house, and like her clothing collection I expect it is going to be a huge success.

The highlight of the collection for me had to be the quirky lamps from the Cat Lamp, modelled on her adopted cat Rudy, to the to the Vintage Floor Lamp, I just love its granny-chic vibe with its floral print and fringing. I also loved the Chinese-inspired bedside cabinets and chests, the decorative Parisian-style Mirror, and the exquisite Melrose Blossom Chair, now if only I had somewhere to put it!!!

If you are after a statement piece to jazz up a tired room this collection really does have some great pieces, prices range from £18 to £899.

So what do you think – any pieces stand-out for you?

Interiors: Mexican Inspired Light Fittings

I am seriously loving the new Kings Cross train station, not only is it a lot bigger, it also has new restaurants and I am addicted to the Mexican place upstairs. Not only is it an excuse to have nachos outside of the cinema, it also serves my favourite Caribbean drink, Ting, and it has the coolest interior – I love these light fittings.
